Weekend sewing

This weekend I shall be forcing myself to sit down and get through the pile of mending jobs that have stacked up recently. I particularly dislike sewing jobs, like mending a hem or sewing buttons back on. Urgh, so dull! But they have to be done and this weekend they will all be fixed, washed and put back into the wardrobes because I am fed up looking at them!

I will also be finishing the christmas stockings which I mentioned last year. I started them earlier in the week and had some real hissy fits about them and I really lost it when I screwed up the ribbon trimming, so I packed it all away and decided enough was enough. I will not let them beat me so this weekend I'm hoping to conquer them! This is what the first one looks like at the moment, it needs the trimming unpicked and resewn before the front and back get sewn together and hey presto, ready for Santa's delivery!

What are you doing this weekend?


  1. I actually really like this stocking! I always thought handmade stockings had to be knit but I will definitely try to sew a stocking for the baby (for next year, of course!) - thanks for sharing :)

  2. Funnily enough, I'm making Christmas prezzies.Oh, and I'm baking pumpkin pies because my pumpkins won't make it to Hallowe'en after the wet summer.


Talk to me, leave me a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
